    Following the Pulse Night Club shooting, an Assistant Florida state Attorney has been suspended for posting ill about Orlando on Facebook. According to a press release from the Office of the Orange Osceola State Attorney, Kenneth Lewis wrote this disparaging message just hours after the massacre: Downtown Orlando has no bottom. The entire city should be leveled. It is void of a single redeeming quality. It is a melting pot of 3rd world miscreants and ghetto thugs. It is void of culture. If you live down there you do it at your own risk and at your own peril. If...

    Earlier this year, ESPN sent a memo to its employees that tells them to refrain from making political statements. But it seems as if the policy has a double standard. Jemele Hill, a co-host on ESPN2′s His & Hers, tweeted Sunday that it’s wrong for Americans to condemn homophobia in Islamic cultures, given the discrimination that gay people have faced in the United States. The tweet was a response to the reaction following the Orlando shootings, where a gunman pledged allegiance to ISIS before killing 49 people and wounding 53 more inside of a popular gay nightclub early Sunday morning.

    Disneys Frozen owes its box office success to a witty script, a (minor) break from the usual formula of romantic resolution, and a song that no American parent will ever forgive them for writing. But it has also inspired feminists and LGBTers to claim the movies heroine Princess Elsa as one of their own: the first lesbian princess in Disney history. Oh yes, you can read all about it in the liberal rag of your choice. Since Elsa required no love interest, it therefore stands to reason that the entire movie is one big Gay Power extravaganza.

    Just east of the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World, Florida, is a lake. In the middle of Bay Lake is an island that Disney won't let anyone set foot on. That's because Discovery Island is home to an abandoned park that they'd rather nobody saw. Just across the water is another deserted park, River Country. These images show nature reclaiming what Disney left behind. These are the only Disney parks to close permanently. Discovery Island was a nature reserve open between 1974 and 1999 and River Country, a water theme park, operated from 1976 to 2001.

    For the first time, tickets to Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California will cost more during holidays and some weekends up to 20 percent more than during slower periods, as the bursting-at-the-seams parks seek to spread out demand. The Walt Disney Company unveiled its long-expected move to demand-based pricing in a blog post on Saturday. The seasonal changes, which take effect on Sunday, affect the two theme park resorts differently and apply only to single-day tickets and not the multiday packages that the majority of vacationing families buy, particularly at Disney World.

    A Disney IT worker who was laid off and replaced by foreign workers along with hundreds of his colleagues broke down in tears before a Senate panel Thursday while telling his story. “During the holiday season of 2014, I was sent a meeting invitation by a prominent Disney executive. With an excellent review in hand along with company announcements of record profits my mind buzzed with thoughts of a promotion or a bonus,” Leo Perrero, the former Disney worker testified before the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest. “I walked into a small conference room with about two...

    Solar panels contain toxic, hazardous materials and there are no regulations in North Carolina on how to dispose of them. Also, there are no plans in place to deal with what could happen if a storm destroyed a solar facility. The Environmental Review Commission met last week and began a discussion about the toxic materials in solar panels, what to do with expired solar panels and what to do in the event of an accident or natural disaster involving a solar facility. Chaired by Sen. Trudy Wade (R-Guilford), the commission heard from Tom Reeder, NC Department of Environmental Quality assistant...

    “I’m doing this because I don’t like bullies,” Dena Moore says, explaining why she— as one of the American Disney workers who was laid off and forced to train her low-wage H-1B foreign replacement— is now launching a discrimination lawsuit against the corporation. “You can’t let a bully continue to be the bully. Someone had to say: ‘Slavery isn’t right, I think I’ll stand up against it.’ Someone had to say: ‘We shouldn’t [mistreat] our women. I think I’ll stand up.’ Someone had to stand up. That’s what I’m hoping that my work is doing. There’s a lot of people...

    Anyone trying to understand why Donald Trump always has thought New Hampshire would be friendlier to him than Iowa should put aside the polls for a moment and focus on what each state's Republican voters are putting on their Spotify playlists. According to data for the week ending Feb. 1, Iowa Republicans can't stop listening to "This Is Amazing Grace" by Christian rocker Phil Wickham, which opens with the verse: "Who breaks the power of sin and darkness/Whose love is mighty and so much stronger/The King of Glory, the King above all kings." Republicans in New Hampshire, meanwhile, prefer "Idle...

    Disney just posted the best quarterly earnings in the company's history. So why was its stock down more than 4% in after-hours trading? Four letters: ESPN. The Burbank, Calif. entertainment giant on Tuesday posted earnings of $1.63 per share, or $2.9 billion in total, for the quarter ending Jan. 2, beating analysts' expectations of $1.45 per share. The massive haul came in large part thanks to The Force Awakens, which has now grossed more than $2 billion globally, not to mention massive amounts of merchandising and licensing revenue. Disney's movie studio division made $1 billion in profit all by itself,...
